The CIC schools are pursuing a higher level of certification through the InCommon Federation, to which all CIC schools belong. This will allow users to access shared digital resources more securely. In addition, management policies will be refined, and represent a greater ability for CIC schools to collaborate on higher-stakes activities.
This is a space where all of those involved in the CIC InCommon Silver project can share their experiences/lessons learned.
